Thumbs down Infrastructure woes drive away IIT students from classes

What else can you expect when the Union Human Resources Minister Arjun Singh is hell bent on opening numerous IITs like road side tea stalls.

Infrastructure woes drive away IIT students from classes

Date: Sunday, October 05, 2008

Mumbai: Infrastructure woes are driving away students from attending classes in the Indian Institute of Technology, Rajasthan. In the midst of accommodation adjustments in the newly established IITs the students mostly end up missing the morning classes and authorities had to face lecturers' complaints on the irregularity which was never an issue at the old IITs.

The decision of setting up six new IITs was taken this year by the HRD Ministry. Because of the swiftness of the move, the classes of three IITs are being conducted out of temporary premises, while the other three new institutes are functioning out of existing IIT campuses. And in Kanpur, students of IIT-Rajasthan have been accommodated in housing meant for faculty members. About eight to 10 of them have been put up in one house, which has one common shower area.

As reported in Times of India one of the students said, "Each day, there is an argument about who will get up earliest. So there were a lot of adjustments to make initially. Students of IIT-Kanpur, on the other hand, who are also on the same campus, do not have to make such adjustments. We are waiting to move into the Rajasthan campus". Students have now decided to come up with a separate timetable for using the shower areas in the halls of residence. However, some faculty members said students were not getting up on time, and, hence, were late for class. But students refuted it saying they were forced to be up hours before class as many of them had been stuffed into one room.

As the lack of attendance is taking its peak, the regulators are now forced to issue notices reading, "It was brought to the notice of the undersigned that there has been unwarranted deviation in adherence of lectures/ tutorials/ lab sessions schedule by students." Infact, Sanjay Dhande, IIT-Kanpur director and the in-charge head for IIT-Rajasthan, has now asked all instructors to maintain data of "irregular attendance of students", a move never taken by IIT Kanpur in its entire history.

Re: Infrastructure woes drive away IIT students from classes

as our population increases we would need more premier institutions, so i dont think open 'some' more IITs is a bad idea. There needs to be a good plan and proper execution though. bloody politics to start institutes soon since it will be difficult for any opposition to close any institute rather than opposing the starting of one.

Earlier there used to be Tin shed Private Engineering colleges, but under Arjun Singh we got to see Tin-Shed IIT's.

Re: Infrastructure woes drive away IIT students from classes

now if such news travels to west.. goes down the toilet a years of effort to build brand name and hence IT services industry in India...

People in this country seem to forget that IT services industry in this country came because of those people who went to USA etc...started companies in valley's etc and then moved to management positions to give software monkeys like Infosys etc work...


I am absolutely appalled...thank god I got now an MBA brand too in my CV...after few days IIT will mean Indian Idiot doing Technology...instead of whatever it stood for
